Monthly Webinar Series

One of the things we clearly heard at the 2019 Digital Learning Symposium was the desire to build a stronger, more engaging, community and to continue the digital learning conversations throughout the year. On September 27, 2019, we launched a monthly Digital Learning Initiative (DLI) Webinar, and associated newsletter, for these purposes.

Each webinar will share relevant updates from the System Office, best practices found across the System, an outside speaker, insights into new technologies and occasionally, the ability for us to have deeper discussions on a specific topic or research area. We are open to your suggestions and welcome the opportunity for you to present on a topic of interest to the community. 

Please reach out to Jim Ptaszynski ( or John Falchi ( if you have any suggestions to make this community even better.
